The Ultimate Guide to Cake Vodka Recipes

I’ve been experimenting with a lot of alcohol these days. And while I managed to use up an entire (small) bottle of Tequila Rose testing  my Strawberry shortcake shooters, I wasn’t able to pull that off with the cake vodka. Probably because I could only find a giant bottle.

That’s how the Pineapple Upside Down Cake cocktail came to be. A giant bottle of cake vodka with no one to love it. But love it I do.

On the off chance that you too are staring at a pretty vodka bottle wondering what to do with it I’ve put together this list of Cake Vodka Recipes! It doesn’t matter if you’re rocking the Three Olive’s Cake Vodka, a bottle of Pinnacle Cake Vodka, some UV Cake or Smirnoff Iced Cake Vodka, get ready to get tipsy!

It’s pretty intense and there is a lot to get though so I’m testing out a new index method. Feel free to scroll for days or jump right to the different sections for: Cake Vodka Shots, Cake Vodka Cocktails, Cake Vodka Blender Drinks Cake Vodka Martinis

If you’ve got a little bit leftover…

Long ago I learned that pouring a bottle of Bailey’s over a pan of brownies is a delicious decision. Similar choices can be made with cake vodka!

You could booze up a dessert like my Red, White & Blueberry Trifles by soaking the cake layer in a little bit of booze.
